Tile SU26-30: Recovery Onset Area

This is an example of a tile, the unit of distribution for the full-resolution data. One of the main successes of the RAMP imaging campaign is the recognition that several East Antarctic glaciers, such as the Recovery, extend much further into the ice sheet than was previously suspected. Flow traces extending upstream from the area on the right side of this image reach nearly 1,000 kilometers inland from the Recovery Glacier grounding line.
